ND Lawrence - Naturopathy's "Core Value", Supernatural-Vitalism

here, I cite from the web pages of a Kansas ND who specifically equates naturopathy's "healing power of nature" with the supernatural and vitalistic [see 001., below]; then, I reiterate the AANP's false labels upon naturopathy that got me involved with this racket so many years ago [see 002., below]; finally, I reiterate your basic human right to believe in that which you so choose, in terms of matters of 'freedom of conscience' [see 003., below]:

001. Lawrence, V. (ND CCNH) states:

001.a. in "What is a Naturopath?" [vsc 2010-12-01]:

"the practice of naturopathy is based on the premise that the body is self-healing [BISH]. There is a belief in a spirit, vital energy or life force [S=VE=LF] beyond the physical realm, although modern medicine has not found a way to measure this energy [TE]. When there is an illness or disease, the life force has become blocked in its ability to self-heal. The task of the naturopath is to discover what may be the obstacles to healing. The obstacles are of a physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual nature [...] the foundation of naturopathy follows these core values: [#1] vis medicatrix naturae [VMN]: nature possesses the power to heal illness [...] the body has an inherent ability to establish, maintain, and restore health. The healing process is ordered and intelligent [teleological!], nature heals through the response of the life force. The naturopath’s role is to facilitate this process [TP...#2] primum non nocere, first do no harm [...] illness is a purposeful process of the organism. The process of healing includes the generation of symptoms which are, in fact, an expression of the life force attempting to heal itself. Therapeutic actions should be complementary to and synergistic with this healing process [THP]. The physician's actions can support or antagonize the actions of the vis mediatrix [sp., 'medicatrix'] naturae, the healing power of nature [VMN=HPN]."

Note: so, for naturopathy, there's this obvious equation:

BISH = S=VE=LF = TE = VMN = TP = VMN=HPN.

Naturopathy's core values encompass: a belief amalgam that is all-at-once supernatural, vitalistic, and teleological.
001.b. in "Why Naturopathy?" [vsc 2010-12-01]:

"the foundation of naturopathy follows these core values: [#1] vis medicatrix naturae, nature possesses the power to heal illness [VMN-NPTPTHI...] the healing process is ordered and intelligent [teleological!], nature heals through the response of the life force [LF]. The naturopath’s role is to facilitate this process [TP...#2] primum non nocere, first do no harm [...] illness is a purposeful process of the organism. The process of healing includes the generation of symptoms which are, in fact, an expression of the life force [LF] attempting to heal itself. Therapeutic actions should be complementary to and synergistic with this healing process [THP]. The physician's actions can support or antagonize the actions of the vis mediatrix [sp., 'medicatrix'] naturae -- the healing power of nature [VMN-HPN]."

Note: so, the vitalistic equation / naturopathy's "core value" context is expressed as:

VMN-NPTPTHI = LF = TP = THP = VMN=HPN.

002. the AANP-Alliance false promise / label:

A long time ago I was bamboozled into naturopathy -- in part -- by that pseudoprofession's at-large false self-labeling.

The consortia, known as the AANP-Alliance, then comprised of the "AANP, Bastyr University, National College of Naturopathic Medicine and the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences", stated in "The Alliance Legislative Workbook" (1997) (I've uploaded my original copy to scribd.com) (archived here):

"naturopathic physician's are the modern day science based primary care doctor [...] it is not a belief system."

Note:  when, actually [!!!], the discretely naturopathic is HUGELY science-ejected and 'of belief', as ND Lawrence has demonstrated.

Thanks, AANP Alliance and your component schools.  As a person of integrity, I shall "Never Forget" this racket.

003. basic human rights:

What does it mean to be falsely induced in terms of commerce?  To be a victim of unfair trade and kind?  With the State a huge accomplice in the matter!  This particularly relates to naturopathy's and States', such as Oregon's, wrongful mislabeling of naturopathy in term of science.

But, there is an even more profound issue, apart from science.  It has to do with what one can choose or not choose to hold as a belief / matter of conscience.  What naturopathy is doing is disguising such voluntary matters falsely as objective fact.  But, things which are 'faithy' are not such.  So, you are being denied a basic human right, if you accept the world as naturopathy would like you to [their way]: a specific kind of voluntary supernaturalism is being superimposed as involuntary fact.
